Until the Seagate / Maxtor 1 TB nighmare drives, I thought the same thing. Bought on two seperate occasions, Maxtor 1 TB external drives, both crashed; bought a Seagate internal 1TB drive .... it lasted 2 weeks. They admit that they shoved the technology out the door too quickly knowing there was a possibility of mass failures. The volume of calls to customer service shut down their whole phone system. There are many nasty product reviews. It was a gamble and they lost.
I run only WD now as the reviews are so much better. I haven't had any problems to date which is very refreshing.
